When watching another movie with a friend of mine, a trailer for "Shazam" came on. She then, in turn, looked at me and asked, “Is there really a hero named Shazam?” and proceeded to laugh a bit.

It was the 2008 U.S. Open playoff featuring Rocco Mediate and Tiger Woods; the last time Woods won a major tournament. I knew from that moment watching Woods...
